The War Years 1939-1946

Presenting over 20 Classic Full Length Batman Tales from the Dc Comics Vault!

€ 26.95

For more than 75 years, through countless comics, television, and movies, Batman has been a symbol of strength and perseverance. He was created in 1939, on the brink of World War II -- a volatile time, when we needed a hero most. Who better to come to the rescue than the Caped Crusader? For the first time, Batman :The War Years 1939-1945 details The Dark Knight?s involvement in the war and his fight against some very real villains. The poor little rich boy orphaned in a late-night robbery.

The lad training for years so that one day he could avenge his parents' deaths. The bat that flies through the window at a crucial moment, inspiring Bruce Wayne with a name and a motif. All of these are wonderful elements in a timeless tale. By early 1940, both Batman and Robin were up and running in no less than two hit comic books. Bob Kane hired a teenager that he happened to meet—Jerry Robinson—to help him churn out what looked like a nice long run of Batman stories.

They didn't know the half of it. For, as the 'second World War loomed ever larger on the horizon, Batman was about to become big business, comic-book style. Ray Thomas has beena comics writer since 1965, mostly for Marvel or Dc. Among the thousands of comic books he has written are Conan the Barbarian, The Avengers, The X-Men, Fantastic Four, All-'star 'squadron, 'sub-Mariner, The Invaders, Dr. 'strange, Red 'sonja, Wonder Woman, and The 'savage 'sword of Conan.

The author:
Rosie Thomas writes for magazines and newspapers as well as her fiction. When not writing she spends her time travelling and mountaineering. In 1997 she competed in the Peking to Paris Motor Rally, and she has climbed Mont Blanc as well as travelling to Everest and the Antarctic.
